Doing More for Our Students

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is committed to student success.  At Gulf Coast, our employees, alumni and community partners believe that part of providing students outstanding opportunities to succeed is ensuring their basic needs are met. Through the food pantry program offered at the college’s campuses and centers, students in need may receive well-balanced meals, snacks and hygiene products for themselves and their families.
